PLATTEVILLE - UW-Platteville welcomes award-winning poet Leslie Adrienne Miller Thursday, Dec. 5. at 8 p.m. Miller, a highly-praised author of four books of poetry, will read from her works in the Platteville Room of the Pioneer Student Center and will be present for a book signing in the University Bookstore.

Miller will be on hand after the poetry reading Thursday night for a question and answer session and then again at noon Friday in the third floor Gardner Hall lounge to discuss her poetics.

Miller's most recent work "Eat Quite Everything You See," was released earlier in the year by Graywolf Press of St. Paul, Minn. Miller previously released three other works entitled "Yesterday Had a Man in It," "Ungodliness," and "Staying Up For Love," all of which were published by Carnegie Mellon University Press.

Miller has received a variety of awards, including the following: McKnight Artists Fellowship of Minnesota's Loft McKnight Award of Distinction, a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in Poetry, the Strousse Award from Prairie Schooner, a national literary quarterly of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and the Nebraska Review Poetry Award.
